Day 7/54 of Water Fast and Novena

SORRY FOR LATE UPDATE I HAD A EXAM!

The Joyful Mysteries
1 x The Sign of the Cross
1 x Hail Mary
Hail! Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, my Mother Mary, hail! At your feet I humbly pray and offer you a crown of snow-white roses, to remind you of your joys. Each ten bound together, recalling to you a joyful mystery, with my petition for a particular grace.

O Holy Queen, dispenser of God’s graces and mother of all who
invoke your holy name. Do not look upon my gift and fail to see its binding. As you graciously receive my gift, I humbly implore you to receive my petition; from your bounty I rest assured that you will grant me the favour I so trustingly seek.

1 x Apostles’ Creed, 1 x Our Father, 3 x Hail Marys and 1 x Glory Be.
First Joyful Mystery – The Annunciation
Sweet Mother Mary, meditating on the Mystery of the Annunciation, when the angel Gabriel appeared to you with the news that you were to become the Mother of God. He greeted you with that sublime salutation, “Hail, full of grace! The Lord is with thee!” and you did humbly submit yourself to the will of the Father, responding: “Behold the handmaid of the Lord. Be it done unto
me according to thy word”, I humbly pray…


1 x Our Father, 10 x Hail Marys, 1 x Glory Be and 1 x Fatima Prayer.
Then say: I bind these snow-white roses with a petition for the grace of humility and humbly lay this bouquet at your feet.
Second Joyful Mystery – The Visitation


Sweet Mother Mary, meditating on the Mystery of the Visitation, when, upon your visit to your holy cousin, Elizabeth, she greeted you with the prophetic utterance, “Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb!” and you answered with that canticle of canticles, the
Magnificat, I humbly pray…

1 x Our Father, 10 x Hail Marys, 1 x Glory Be and 1 x Fatima Prayer.
Then say: I bind these snow-white roses with a petition for the grace of charity towards my
neighbour and humbly lay this bouquet at your feet.

Third Joyful Mystery – The Nativity
Sweet Mother Mary, meditating on the Mystery of the Nativity of Our Lord, when, your time being completed, you brought forth, O holy Virgin, the redeemer of the world in a stable at Bethlehem; whereupon choirs of angels filled the Heavens with their exultant song of praise – “Glory to God in the highest, and on Earth peace to men of goodwill”, I humbly pray…


1 x Our Father, 10 x Hail Marys, 1 x Glory Be and 1 x Fatima Prayer.
Then say: I bind these snow-white roses with a petition for the grace of detachment from the world and humbly lay this bouquet at your feet.

Fourth Joyful Mystery – The Presentation
Sweet Mother Mary, meditating on the Mystery of the Presentation, when, in obedience to the Law of Moses, you presented the Child in the temple, where the holy prophet Simeon, taking the Child in his arms, offered thanks to God for allowing him to look upon his Saviour, I humbly pray…

1 x Our Father, 10 x Hail Marys, 1 x Glory Be and 1 x Fatima Prayer.
Then say: I bind these snow-white roses with a petition for the grace of purity and humbly lay this bouquet at your feet.


Fifth Joyful Mystery – The Finding of the Child Jesus in the Temple
Sweet Mother Mary, meditating on the Mystery of the Finding of the Child Jesus in the Temple, when, having sought Him for three days, distressed and anxious at His absence, your heart was gladdened when you found Him in the temple speaking to the doctors; and upon your request, He obediently returned home, I humbly pray…


1 x Our Father, 10 x Hail Marys, 1 x Glory Be and 1 x Fatima Prayer.
Then say: I bind these snow-white roses with a petition for the grace of true wisdom and humbly lay this bouquet at your feet.

The Concluding Prayers for all the Mysteries

Spiritual Communion
My Jesus, really present in the most Holy Sacrament of the altar, since I cannot now receive you under the Sacramental Veil, I beseech you, with a heart full of love and longing, to come spiritually into my soul through the immaculate heart of Your most Holy Mother, and abide with me forever.

Sweet Mother Mary, I offer you this Spiritual Communion to bind my
bouquets in a wreath to place upon your brow. O my Mother! Look with favour upon my gift, and in your love obtain for me (specify request here).

After you have said the above, you conclude with the following:
1 x Hail Mary
1 x Hail Holy Queen
1 x Prayer to St Michael the Archangel
1 x Memorare
1 x The Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary
1 x Sign of the Cross

Update on Water Fast

Going well just super busy with my exams . Nearly done before the holidays and honestly I cannot wait to sleep and go back home. Not so tired. As we know all Hallows Eve is coming up soon. As far as weight loss i lost inches of my waist but I do not see movement in the scale. My tongue is white and obviously as part of oral hygiene I clean my tongue . Breath wise its a little off but I manage to brush often and chew gum in order to be presentable. I haven’t been for walking was super busy preparing for the exam in which I scored a perfect mark. I do my prayers and I need to attend confession , most likely on Saturday. I have not missed the day of novena just forgot to upload the prayer here. Sorry about that.
